WHAT IS AN UNPROFITABLE SERVANT
CAST INTO OUTER DARKNESS WARNING
Let's begin, shall we? An unprofitable servant is one who is called to
perform a task and fails to do so. The end result is that
which the unprofitable servant was to do is an added burden placed on others that serve the same cause because of the failure of the unprofitable servant to comply with the commands of their employer.
God has called His servants (Christians) to help with the Harvest.
The Harvest is the gathering all of the lost souls
and troubled Christians and His servants are to share the
TRUTH with these lost children of God as to give them the
same opportunity that we Christians that HAVE been given the
TRUTH have been given.
But, alas we have some Christians that
SAY “You betcha” yet do NOT follow through.
But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he
came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my
vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but
afterward he repented, and went. And he came to the
second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I
go, sir: and went not. Whether of them twain did the
will of his father? They say unto him, The first.
Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you,
That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of
God before you.
Have you ever
considered that being
a Christian is not only a calling to be set free from the
chains of man's world but is also an administration where
you are to share what you have been given with others as to
assist them in being set free? Once you become a believer
you become part of the body of Christ. Each body part has an
assigned task. Therefore, it is like a JOB. Your
wages are eternal life with Jesus Christ.
your job description, as a servant of God? Simple ... To
glorify Him through your words and deeds as to bring light
to the darkness of others as you share the TRUTH of the
Gospel and prepare those that are new to the body or are
unaware of how the body functions the tricks of the trade of
the Christian Walk.
it for a
moment. God is your employer. Consider this TRUTH ... You
at work each morning and meet with God in Prayer. You ask
for your assignment and ask that He reveal HIS will
throughout the day. You set forth to bring His will to pass
and show His glory to all that He brings across your path.
Cuz NOTHING is luck or chance.
How about asking
Him to give you opportunities to do something really
phenomenal for Him. What if you really started treating Him
like He's the boss and not you ... Do you think He'll offer
you a promotion or a blessing that you may have missed if
you just kept following your own plans ... Doing the bare
minimum just to get by one more day at work?
In order to
survive, unfortunately most people have to perform a job in
man's world, and that is cool but EVERY Christian has a job in God's
people treat it like their second job, even though it's the
most important and the benefits are far beyond what any
worldly job can offer. It has the best Eternal Life
insurance policy that money cannot buy.
But some people don't think of it as
a job at all. I don't mean that in the sense that their
enthusiasm for serving the Lord is so great that they don't
think of it as work (though I wish that was everyone's
attitude) ... What I mean is, that most people don't feel
like their job description as a Christian requires anything
more than simply to say ... " I am a Christian" and that
a couple of parables about this very thing. Let's take a
look at what He said about the unprofitable servant:
For the Kingdom of Heaven is as a man travelling into
a far country, who called his own servants, and
delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave
five talents, to another two, and to another one; to
every man according to his several ability; and
straightway took his journey. Then he that had
received the five talents went and traded with the
same, and made them other five talents. And likewise
he that had received two, he also gained other two.
But he that had received one went and digged in the
Earth, and hid his lord's money. After a long time the
lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with
them. And so he that had received five talents came
and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou
deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have
gained beside them five talents more.
His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and
faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few
things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter
thou into the joy of thy lord. He also that had
received two talents came and said, Lord, thou
deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained
two other talents beside them. His lord said unto him,
Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been
faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler
over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
Then he which had received the one talent came and
said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man,
reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where
thou hast not strawed: And I was afraid, and went and
hid thy talent in the Earth: lo, there thou hast that
His lord answered and said unto him, Thou
wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap
where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the
exchangers, and then at my coming I should have
received mine own with usury. Take therefore the
talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten
talents. For unto every one that hath shall be given,
and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath
not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And
cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness:
there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
DO NOT BE AN UNPROFITABLE SERVANT
CAST INTO OUTER DARKNESS CONCERN
In short ... The Lord gives us the command, opportunity and the ability to share Him
with others, and thereby bring His lost sheep back to Him.
If we take the opportunities that are given to us, we gain
many blessings, but if we refuse to try, we lose even the
blessings that we have. Let's look at another parable Jesus told:
He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig
tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought
fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the
dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I
come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none:
cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he
answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year
also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if
it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou
shalt cut it down.
referring to God checking the fruits of Man over the
previous years and finding no fruit. NO PRODUCTIVITY. They
chose to serve themselves in man's world as compared to
answering the call. So now Jesus, by way of the Holy Spirit
is working the soil of our minds and hearts as to have us
produce better fruit for God to feed millions with the
it takes a lil urging for us to get busy serving the Lord, because
if we're left alone without motivation, we end up dormant
and end up only viewing the world as if it all revolves
Then comes the pain and anguish man's world emits and the
individual goes off whining that GOD is at fault. Tsk tsk.
All it takes is a little
effort, a lil passion, a little purpose, a little give a hoot and you can be producing fruit
for the Lord in no time. But ... You MUST act. Enough with
the excuses. Enough with the selfish points of view. Enough
with the pity parties.
Get REAL. Get a clue. Get after your job. Get back to the
land of the living ... GET WITH JESUS ... Or get ready to
know what being in the darkness of a whale feels like. If
you do fall into this trap, I pray that it is only 3 days as
with Jonah and not Eternal.
question that everyone who has neglected their service to
the Lord should all ponder on: How many
times are you going to tell the Lord that the dog ate your
homework? How many excuses will you make up? How many times
will you run and hide, as Jonah did when he was assigned a
task? How many times will you procrastinate and say TOMORROW
I will do this or that? And just one more question ... How
many more times do you suppose you'll get away with it
before you are deemed as an unprofitable servant?
each and every one of us to work for Him ... We are all His
servants. He expects us to say yes to the AWESOME
that He has placed before us for the GRACE that He has
offered us by sacrificing His Son to get us this one last
of our lives He gives us the choice to be a better servant,
to get a promotion, a raise in Spiritual Gifts, To climb HIS
Corporate ladder. It is that Spiritual stairway to Heaven.
ODE TO THE UNPROFITABLE SERVANT
CAST INTO OUTER DARKNESS DANGER
So many callen souls choose to fail to answer the call. The world is just too
appealing with it's temporal "treats" ... This is why so
many end up heartbroken and worse. They CHOOSE the world
over God then choose to blame God ... Jesus said:
obvious that this is because few
choose ... To serve Him.
ago, you read of some terrible consequences for those who
are deemed as the unprofitable servant:
ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall
be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
that is a down right horrifying prospect.
Lord wants ALL of us to choose to serve Him. He doesn't want
anyone to be cast into outer darkness.
As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure
in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn
from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil
ways; for why will ye die ...
Does it not just break your heart to hear our
Lord plea for us to stop hurting ourselves? Don’t you want
to do something to ease His pain? Don’t you care? Will you
just say “Amen” to these words of TRUTH and then walk away
and forget what he has said and return to your assembly line
in man’s world? Will you fail Him yet again? What will YOU
say when He reminds you of this at Judgment day? What excuse
do you feel will be worthy?
